with Jenn Malecha, FDNP
Did you know that most of your serotonin is made in your gut?
In Episode 34, Brodie talks with Jenn Malecha, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, about the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease. The connection between your intestines and your overall well being may not seem very intuitive, but gut health can have a huge effect on how you feel on a daily basis. Listen in to find out how your diet, exercise, sleep, and stress reduction regimens could cause leaky-gut, in turn leading to increased risk of a wide variety of autoimmune disorders.
In this episode, we explore:
- The connection between gut health and autoimmune disease
- What is leaky-gut?

- What diet is best for someone with poor gut health?
